Ride Details

Cycle 4 Change is a small ride for cyclists who want to ride some big distances in a short amount of time.

Cycle 4 Change is an annual cycling event that is hosted in a different location each year. The 2019 ride is located in Adelaide, with past rides happening in central north Tasmania (2016), and Canberra and the Snowy Mountains (2017).

This cycling event was set up by a group of riders that wanted to ride in different locations and to make an impact in the lives of kids who have suffered abuse or neglect. Funds raised are donated to Southern Cross Kids’ Camps. This is not-for-profit organisation that provides annual camps for children across Australia.

The 2019 ride is based around the local hills in the hinterland country around Adelaide. They plan to do the iconic hills from the Tour Down Under that send a shiver into the legs of sprinters and flatlanders ie. Willunga Hill, Corkscrew Road. A climber’s wishlist of the local hills.

Over 4 days the Cycle 4 Change will cover a challenging ride of more than 500km and over 5000m of climbing.

Day 1: Glenelg to Norton Summit – Lenswood – Lobethal – The Gorge and Norton Summit
Day 2: Glenelg to Myponga – Willunga Hill – McLaren Vale – Noarlunga
Day 3: Glenelg to Corkscrew Rd – Marble Hill – Mt Lofty, Corkscrew road
Day 4: Glenelg to Stirling – Hahndorf – Mt Barker – Greenhill Road

Numbers for this ride are limited to 30 riders for this year. There is a waitlist available, and registrations require the fundraising to be achieved first before being granted.

The weather for this time of year in Adelaide is at the transition into autumn and would be considered warm to hot. Expect minimums of 10-20 degrees and maximums of 25-35 degrees. There is only a small chance of rain and when if does, it should only be a light sprinkle.

You’ll find other great cycling events, like Cycle 4 Change, in our online Cycling Event Calendar.
